Tropical Pressure, what a fabulous festival it was again this year with totally tropical weather & happy, groovy African, Carribean & Cornish vibes. Overlooking the sea, fields and old mining ruins, the 42 acre organic farm venue has surprises, chilled out areas around every beautifully decorated corner.
The wide variety of music, tropical DJ’s, music, craft and dance workshops, yoga, kids’ play & making sessions, healing treatments, storytelling & the circus tent keeps everyone well entertained over the 3 days. Our daughter and her mates walked down to the beach in the day time to cool down in the sea so that’s an option too. I also love it that the wide choice of delicious food options are 100% vegetarian with lots of vegan options. The late night Blue Moon Cafe that only opens at 10pm was a special treat to take the kids before bed – the most delicious milky vegan chai made with coconut milk – enjoyed in their Morrocan style tent with lots of cosy cushions.
Our stretch tent was the well-needed shade area for the weekend & overlooked the main stage so we chilled out in there quite a bit of the time. It was baking hot but we had a seriously freaky sea mist roll over one late afternoon which brought a welcome cool down too.
One of my favourite places is the Amplitheatre, a small circular venue with a small stage, where we saw some fabulous Cornish bands & danced in the sunshine. See pics below of us loving Kieren & the Iguana’s and another band I wish I could remember the name of!?
Evenings you have the main stage with music till late then you can head to the late night indoor venue beautifully decorated in fluorescent tropical decor and the DJ’s funky Carribean / African music kept us dancing till early hours.
Can’t wait for next year – 14th July is on our calender already! Below are some more of the photos I took of the weekend.
